You know, it’s funny how life works out sometimes. We hope and dream for things to happen at a time, only to have the hope fade and the dream wash away in reality. Ah the days of old.
Back in 2007 between the releases of Final Fantasy I and II on the PSP, I made this box art over at VGBoxart. At the time it seemed logical that Final Fantasy III would possibly come to the Sony handheld. As time went by, however, it seemed like the game would remain tied to Nintendo’s DS. Eventually I gave up on the port and moved on to other things. Fast-forward to today, and we have a different story. Not only has the game been released for the iOS, Square-Enix has just announced Final Fantasy III for the PSP. It seems like an announcement out of no where, and yet I’m not excited by this at all. If they had told me this was coming 5 years ago, my face would’ve exploded, but right now I just don’t care. Anyway, I’m writing this for one reason. That reason? To say you heard it here first! Even before FFoP was created, you heard it here first. Maybe I can predict the future five years out or something. Maybe I should post a box for the long sought remake of Final Fantasy VII. Maybe then Square-Enix will finally see they need to make it for all their fans. HA! I doubt it.
Here is the box I made for the sake of my shameless self promotion:
Final Fantasy III PSP launches in Japan on September 20th, 2012. No word on if the game is coming to any other region yet.
